We offer information and support to anyone affected by cancer. We are a drop-in Centre and our visitors are patients, their families or health care professionals supporting them. They might want to know about a particular cancer, getting help when discharged or just wish to talk to someone about how they are feeling. The Centre is run by a Macmillan Information Manager and supported by trained volunteers who provide an essential service assisting visitors. They find the right booklet or drug factsheet, listen to their fears or signpost them to an outside organisation. They also undertake ward visits to cancer in-patients and take telephone calls for nurses. If you’re making a journey to the hospital just to visit the Centre please call beforehand to check we’ll be available. Thank you.
